Parents Spends 16 Days With Daughter's Dead Body To Cope With Devastating Loss
A grieving mother who spent 16 days with her dead baby after she died of a rare condition is raising awareness.
When Charlotte Szakacs and her husband, Attila, learned their unborn daughter, Evlyn, had a rare chromosome abnormality, they were devastated.
For a month, Evlyn was hooked up to machines to stay alive. As Evelyn's health deteriorated, her parents had to make a hard decision - watch her die in hospital sorrounded by machines or peacefully in hospice.
The couple chosed the later and spent 16 days with Evelyn after she passed.
Evelyn stayed in a temperature controlled cob and the parents took her for walks.
Charlotte claims that time helped her emotionally. She says what she did isn't the best option for everyone but those last days spent with her daughter made all the difference.
